Key Features

Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile - Intense areas of camber for aggressive edge hold and tremendous pop.

Power Grip Sidecut - Deeper cut towards the tip and tail, to an almost completely straight section in the middle, the sidecut is cut on multiple radii for added control and response in any condition.

Damping Rating: Mid - "Mid" rating on the Never Summer damping scale - playful and snappy underfoot but still retains some smoothness at higher speeds.

Damping Ratings = Snappy, Mid, Smooth or Cushy


NS Superlight Wood Core - Taking their Custom Flight Core even further, Never Summer's Superlight Wood Core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.


Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

STS Pretensioned Fiberglass - A pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered fiberglass laminate producing a stronger bond. This gives the board unmatched strength and edge hold.

Carbon Max Laminate Technology - This laminate tech combines a top and bottom carbon makeup allowing energy to continue so you get the most response possible while maintaining torsional stiffness for control.

RDS 2 Rubber Damping System - This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combinations of vibration absorption and stability.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Rubber pads directly below the mounting area that provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Harmonic Tip & Tail Damper - Harmonic Dampers in the tip and tail take out a lot of vibrations in the tip and tail out of the board while keeping the board lively where it counts.

Perforated Rocker Pad - Perforated to reduce weight, these thin elastomeric pads are strategically located in the midsection of the board to absorb vibrations between the feet.


Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base. Just the right amount of graphite has been added, making it the fastest they've ever made.


3 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 3 years from the time of purchase! Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear.


Co-Extruded Polymer Topsheet - This premium topsheet is made from co-extruded polymer thermoplastic fiber and is very durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant.

Extended Transition Area - A flat section on the outside of the feet that helps initiate turning, float, and delivers an overall increased consistency in board-feel.

Low-Profile Tip & Tail - This maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds stability to your landings. LPT also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it’s deep.

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls - Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature offering a smoother, faster ride.

Great board
by Dutch in Glendale, CA (Verified Buyer)

Never Summer Proto Type Two Snowboard
I do mostly all mountain riding and experimenting with freestyle and this board is great! It's very fast, easy to turn (although it turns very quickly, so be ready), and handles great on rough terrain. Wouldn't recommend for powder riding but it can do everything else well.
